  1. I used this combination for a while. The GBS-8220 isn't perfect. You will see weird artifacts on the output. The Best cable is fantastic, but, without something like a GBS or an OSSC you're going to need a monitor that can do 15kHz. Nowadays, I use this ST to SCART cable with the OSSC, or I plug it into my Sony PVM. That turned out to be the best solution for me. I also use a TOM rev2 mouse adapter with little trouble. I find the original ST mouse to be annoying slow.
  2. Thom is right on the fig-FORTH implementations, but there are a few implementations that can read DOS files: X-FORTH, VolksForth for example. They both have an INCLUDE" word, used like: INCLUDE" D1:MYFILE.FS"
  3. I'd love to help with getting some of this over to the wiki, is there a process I can apply for edit access? 😀
  4. It would be awesome to add this detail (and extra toolkit!) to AtariWiki!
  5. Yep, that is correct - MOVE $0570,$C4,-4 It must have something to do with the U1MB.
  6. I must have something configured differently than you do, or my ROM is bad. My setup is: Altirra 3.20, U1MB with latest firmware, SIDE 2 with latest firmware, PCLink device, using OSS Basic XL ROM from the SIDE 2 firmware, and EXTEND.COM provided in this thread. That nets me the "Line Not Fnd" error from before. If I configure as U1MB with latest firmware, with no SIDE2, and use the OSSBasicXL103.car or OSSBasicXL103.rom from AtariWiki, it locks up when I RUN the program you listed in your screenshot with no output.
  7. Okay, that worked - the GTIA test worked. Something is still off, some of the extended statements are broken, specifically call and procedure:
  8. I can certainly understand that. Okay, that gets further - it doesn't lock up anymore, but it doesn't quite work right either. I've tried with your change of the offset in the MOVE command, and without (Move $0570,$c4,-4 and Move $0570,$c4,4) It shows the menu when you RUN"D1:EXTEND.BXE", but if you pick the GTIA Test, it starts to output what looks like tokenized source instead of running it.
  9. Oh, if it locks up, then you're not getting any further than I have, and you're clearly much better at this than I am!
  10. I did see you say this in the same thread, so that's where I was thinking there was a patched version. I don't mind using the OSSBasic103.car image instead of the one inside the SIDE2 cart, if that makes a difference?
  11. Ohhhhhh okay, I wasn't sure if it was fixed and I was just missing something or not. I'll go play with Action! for now then, thanks!
  12. Hi there, I'm trying to get the OSS BASIC XL extensions working with an Ultimate 1MB + SIDE 2 cart, but I'm not getting very far. I grabbed the extensions disks from https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Basic XL but it locks up when I run the EXTEND.COM file from disk 2. I'm trying this in Altirra first so I can get it right, then I'll start doing it on my physical 800XL. I saw a thread where Alfred had a patched EXTEND.COM but I can't seem to find it? Thanks!!
  13. Bummer. I do see the schematics for the Magnum boards online, maybe I could try and do a layout of those. I'm totally an amateur with KiCad or EAGLE.
  14. Hi there, I have a Mega STE with a full 4mb in it and a Nova video card, but I'd really, really like to throw more RAM into the machine so it makes for a better multi-tasking system. Any ideas on how I'd go about this? I have a Marpet 8mb card in my Mega ST, so there's got to be something like that for a Mega STE. Thanks!
  15. From what I understand, the five post version, which is what mine and the OP's are, is in the first revision of the Mega STE. But seriously, I just took a drill bit to it and removed the center post entirely and filed it down a bit to make it smooth. Works like a charm. On mine, what would happen is the 5V and 12V lines would "pulse" - I wasn't sure if recapping it would help, so I just went ahead and replaced it. I don't mind replacing caps on motherboards but getting near PSU's for that purpose freaks me out a bit... Mains power is no joke.
